BENGALURU (Reuters) -Tata Sons has acquired a majority stake in online grocery seller BigBasket, putting the Indian conglomerate in a direct race with e-commerce players Amazon.com Inc, Walmart's Flipkart and Reliance Industries. The stake was bought by Tata Digital Limited, a unit of Tata Sons.

Tata on Friday declined to give further details on the deal, while BigBasket did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment. India's antitrust body had in March approved the acquisition of up to a 64.3% stake in BigBasket.
